Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Did you install Bible the same way you're installing this new desklet? I've encountered similar/same errors trying to use some desklets though I'm pretty sure the sensors are there. I hope this gets solved.. I have a thought that maybe the problem is, the desklets have been installed during the OS install, from a .deb, and not like they usually ought to be installed (through the gdesklets program?). Just a thought, anyway.
Thanks for the reply, The Bible program was installed through synaptic, and runs when you type bible into terminal. As for the desklets install, the bible-desklet is in the gdesklets-data program, and I have even downloaded the tar.gz seperately and installed it from there, but I have the same problem. I've had a look at the source code (below) but I can't find anything why it won't run.

There is also a 'Psi' version, which also fails to run. Any ideas anyone?
Ok, I've now managed to fix the problem. I opened gdesklets-data with Ark, and looked in the /sensors/bible directory and compared the files in there with the files in my /usr/share/gdesklets/sensors/bible and found a feedparser.py to be missing! So I extracted the py file to the directory and it now works
